Supercharger for Caddi 500

hello, im looking for a supercharger for a 500 cubic inch caddi engine, i have heard rumors that no one makes such a thing, but on a similar topic, i have also heard of people using performance ford 460 intakes and using spacers to adapt them to the 500 and the theory is sound that if you use a supercharger from a ford 460 and using the same spacers to hook it to the engine, it should work. if anyone has done this please tell me, and if anyone knows of a superharger for the 500 i would appreciate it if you informed me of it, thank you and have a nice day.

500cid.com makes an adapter plate to fit a ford big block intake manifold to the caddy 500, I image that plate could be used to put a blower for a big block ford on the caddy.

See if this is what you are looking for. If so, get in touch with Richard Potter. He makes the intake BDS used and can give you all the info and pricing. Dan

SOmething about a guy with only 4 months of driving experience under his belt driving a supercharged, 500 cid, 450+hp car around scares the ***** out of me...

If you are looking for a CHEAP upgrade, that BDS set up probably isn't for you. Last I heard, price was around $6600........ You supply a motor........The big Cad responds well to simple bolt on mods like an Edelbrock intake, mild cam, and headers.

Do a search of this sight to read about more low buck mods. Dan
